Default Phoenix Launcher

Has anyone tried this home replacement out? It still could use a little more updates but if you want ics this is practically the closest thing to it!

Pretty decent launcher here. I dont like the fact that at the home screen you can't hit the Menu button and go to System Settings but only to Launcher Settings. The scrolling speed is awesome but I would like it to slow down a tiny bit to bring out the smoothness better. It is smooth but it moves to fast to show it LoL. It is a really good launcher definitely.

Lol when you open the app drawer there are some grey dots in the right upper corner. You can access settings from there.

Im digging this shit. Only thing I didn't like, which is the same on 360, is you cant add apps to the dock and keep the "stock" icons. Plus if you have a after market message or browser it doesn't recognize it so you have to add the apps to it.

So I just made my edits and added the "stock" icons to the apps I put in there so it "appears" to still have the stock icons.

That's pretty cool but there are other Icons for the dock in the launcher settings

Seems to be pretty good, definitely worth $1.95 to play with. How do you make folders for the home screen? Or the task switcher like 360 has?

Yeah I don't see why people like to take a shit on go launcher ex, it's the best launcher I've used yet. Using the ICS theme too.

I tried Phoenix and it lags like hell when I scroll through apps.

I like go launcher but I paid .10 cents for adw.ex so that's what I use lol. I like to change launchers every now and then anyways. These launchers are really about personal taste it's all good.

Go launcher is nice but you can't customize it nearly as much as adw. Adw is still the best because of that and it doesn't eat that much ram.

Phoenix is ok. Much better out there. Almost every launcher has an ics theme now so it's just a matter of a good launcher.

Adw with ics for days. Can't touch it.

That launcher doesn't give you the ability to add folders and it hasn't had an update in a while that's why I don't like it so much
